DOUGLAS, Ariz. — Federal authorities said a Douglas man is in custody, accused of trying to smuggle $300,000 in unreported cash across the southern
Arizona border into Mexico.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said a truck driven by 35-year-old
Jerry Joseph Del Rio was selected for further outbound inspection at the Douglas
CBP officers said they found seven packages of U.S. currency hidden inside a
compartment in the truck’s cab.
The truck and cash were processed for seizure and Del Rio was turned over to
